national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepi

on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. though most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly eureka, this is so surprising, so amazing, but rather, people nod yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> reporter: it's possible we may have already seen this election year's october surprise. maybe it was how the candidates reacted to tragedy in libya and the bro
ahead on "starting point." we'll be talking live with john mccain of arizona and rand paul of kentucky. from team obama, we'll be speaking with martin o'malley and campaign spokeswoman, jen psaki. plus, obama's former economic adviser, austan goolsbee. first, though, a look at the instant reaction from the debate in the cnn/orc poll, of debate watchers taken right after the debate, 67% say they think romney won. 25% only thought the president won. cnn's dana bash joins us this morning to go over some of the hits and some of the misses. good morning. >> good morning. well, i'm here in new york, so maybe we should talk about what happens, how you get to carnegie hall, practice, practice, practice. and is that clearly is what helped the mitt romney. he spent a lot of time practicing, really for the past month doing these mock debates. and when it comes to the president, he was rusty. right out of the gate, it was clear. mitt romney came to play. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago. that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, reg
the candidates were telling the truth in tonight's debate. john berman with another reality check. >> medicare a bit topic for some time. mitt romney made the claim that president obama is going to make cuts that affect people on the program today. >> what i support is no change for current retirees and near retirees to medicare and the president supports taking $716 billion out of that program. >> he also used other language in his program, saying obama wants to cut $716 billion. this one checked and checked again. medicare will still grow, it will just grow more slowly, a reduction of growth by $716 billion, and a lot of the money coming out of medicare advantage, not money for beneficiaries, the verdict here is with the language mitt romney uses the verdict is false. i want to talk about health care in general. president obama says good news about health care cost premiums. >> over the last two years, health care premiums have gone up, it's true, but they've gone up slower than any time in the last 50 years. so we're already beginning see -- >> let's look at the facts. medicare premiums did

reading right now. john king, david gergen. >> look at e-mails, conversations during the debate. twitterverse, republicans very happy, including the top team around mitt romney. liberals complaining about the president's performance. without a doubt, participating in republican primary debates helped mitt romney, the president was rusty. hasn't done this in four years. that's not an excuse as james said earlier. the obama campaign says that mitt romney doesn't care about your job or your community. we didn't hear anything like that from the president. romney at least held his own on the big questions of the economy and role of government. if you are the challenger and hold your own, you walk off the stage happy. >> critics of the president say he's two proffesorial. i think they'll say that tonight. >> and more. we have a horse race. mitt romney's performance was head and shoulders than anything we've seen before. >> you think this was his best debate? >> he drove this debate far more than anyone else imagined. mitt romney seized upon the opportunity and set the standard for it
for the big debates. john kerry, by the way, will be playing the role of mitt romney. he's someone who has a lot of experience debating but also knows mitt romney very well as he comes from massachusetts. now, the big issue, though, is who will both of these candidates be able to sway in the debate? as we know, most americans have made up their minds. we're talking about a small slice of those undecided voters who are watching, waiting to find out exactly who will win. >> okay. let's talk about the republican side with paul steinhauser. word on the street, paul, is that mitt romney has been practicing zingers since august. >> yeah. that's the word on the street. the romney campaign won't go there, carol. all they're going to say is, guess what? he's spending a lot of time getting ready. you're right. i don't have any sound from mitt romney like dan had from the president. why? he hasn't done an event in a while. mitt romney, carol, he jumps on a plane today, goes out to colorado. he's got a campaign rally there tonight. but after that basically hunkers down. you mentioned john kerry, of co

right to tonight's big story. we're with john mccain, former presidential candidate, and he joins me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> when it comes to the debate, you were one of the only people, actually, who has debated both barack obama and mitt romney, so you are in a unique place to tell me what you made of both of their performance. whatever way you spin this from the republican side, the job front has to be good news not only for the president but also america, but the number has now gone down to 7.8% for the first time since 8% of his presidency. >> i think that's found to be good news, but i also think you have to take it in the context that 7.8% is still unacceptably high. but it is good news, and i think it's going to be of some help to the president, but certainly with the numbers of unemployed americans we have now, the 23 million, i guess it is, it's still an unacceptable situation. i think the president will concede that. >> jack welsh said today, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change the numbers. is the
crime and justice correspondent joe johns. so, joe, let's break this down. since this is breaking news and you know how it can go with legal decisions, they can be looked at a whole lot of different ways. this particular case, this judge had to look at not the constitutionality of voter i.d.s, he had to look at specifically whether the people of pennsylvania all had equal access to get i.d.s and get to the polls in time. and he's reversed himself from his earlier decision. where does this leave us? >> well, big picture. okay, ashleigh, it's a victory for opponents of the voter i.d. law in pennsylvania but only for this election. what the judge in pennsylvania said is that for this election only, he is blocking this controversial voter i.d. law in pennsylvania. remember, there are a lot of other states that have voter i.d. laws. the reason the judge is doing that in that state is there's not enough time, he says, between now and november to get protections in place to assure that people who want to vote don't lose their ability to vote. so the state right now is cut off from implementin
sniper attacks terrorized the washington, d.c. area. ten people were killed and three wounded. john el mohammad was executed in 2009. his accomplice who was 17 during the killing spree is serving multiple life sentences. in a recent interview malvo admits he was a monster. brian todd has the story now. >> reporter: he says he's a different person now, not the same young man who terrorized the entire washington region for nearly a month. >> i mean, i was a monster. if you look up the definition, i mean, that's what a monster is. i was a ghoul, i was a thief, i stole people's life. >> reporter: lee malvo convicted in the d.c. sniper case says he's truly sorry for what happened. his exclusive interview with "the washington post" comes on the tenth anniversary of the shooting spree that left people in the washington region dead over the course of three weeks. speaking from red onion state prison in virginia where he's serving a life sentence, malvo now 27 tells "the post's" josh white what it was like under the control of his older partner in the killings, john allen mohammed. >> he told m
john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you think of job performance? all americans are split on that question. do they approve or disapprove of the president's job performance, but among latinos, nearly 7 in 10, 68% say they approve of the president's job performance. look across looking in here to find some nugget of hope for governor romney as latinos describe themselves as moderates, 76%. conservative latino voters, you would think that would be governor romney's base, 55% majority of conservative latinos plan to vote for the democratic president o
of all, as you know, john f. kennedy came from a very rich family. so the democrats didn't complain about that when that happened. but i don't want to get into that because i have run for office and what is being said by the other side and what you say about the other side, you cannot take for real. i mean, they don't believe that that is a bad thing that he was successful, nor does i think the romney side believe sometimes what they accuse obama of. you cannot take this stuff that seriously. this is a political year. there's a campaign going on. they will try to do everything that they can and the special interest groups and the other groups are there to paint each other in the most horrible way. that's the way politics is. for some reason or the other, negative ads play better than positive ads. so therefore, you will always play the negative ads. but the important thing is as i always say to people, listen to them carefully tomorrow. pay attention. people should sit and be glued to the television set with a notepad and take notes and really listen carefully what each one says and how m
romney. a debate happening that takes place wednesday night. president obama is using john kerry as his practice partner. the massachusetts senator is portraiting the former massachusetts governor who is mitt romney, and romney is using ron portman as his obama. paul steinhauser has more on their practice sessions. >> reporter: good morning, gary. you know, it's pretty obvious. one will definitely dominate this week in the race for the white house. >> i'm looking forward to the debates. >> reporter: and the first of the three showdowns comes wednesday night when president obama and republican nominee mitt romney face off in denver. both candidates have a lot on the line, especially the gop challenger, who a few days ago gave some insight into his debate preps. >> it's great to have senator rob portman. you know, he debates me from time to time. he is playing barack obama in these mock debates we have. i don't like him very much anymore, all right? he keeps on beating me up and i keep on going away shaking my head. >> reporter: romney flies to colorado monday to hold a rally that night b

. and the person helping the president out, playing the role of mitt romney is senator john kerry. john kerry has been out there on the stage before, a veteran of the debate format and in addition to that he's from massachusetts. and he knows mitt romney well and will be able to help the president fill in any of the blanks he might have. >> dan lothian, thanks very much for that, appreciate it. >> okay. >>> on to the republican side now. mitt romney has been spending his time in boston ifffor the p couple of days doing his prep there. and part of that prep, admittedly is zingers. he's been trying out zingers on his staff since august. let's bring in paul steinhauser. first off, the zinger aspect, sometimes they make history and sometimes they do in debates, but is it a good strategy to think about zingers? or is it something that should happen organically? >> i think what the romney campaign would say, hey, while he's doing that, he's doing other things and preparing in a lot of different ways. i don't think we should take away from this that mitt romney's going to come out and have one zinger af
on the law until the election is over. our crime and justice correspondent joe johns has been following this one for us. so, joe, what happens? walk me through. come november 6th, if a voter doesn't have a photo i.d., then what? >> well, this is just pennsylvania, first of all, brooke. if you show up without an i.d., you will still be able to vote one way or the other. the question is about provisional ballots and whether those provisional ballots, if they're filled out, end up being counted in the state of pennsylvania. so a little bit complicated. but this is being seen as a victory for opponents of the law in pennsylvania, but only for this election. what the judge, judge robert simpson in pennsylvania said, is that for this election only he's blocking the voter i.d. law in pennsylvania, the reason he's doing that is because there is not enough time between now and november to get protections in place to assure that people won't lose their ability to vote. so the state's cutoff from implementing or enforcing the controversial parts of the i.d. law through november 6th, the general el
to you. welcome to "early start." we're happy you're with us, i'm zoraida sambolin. >> and i'm john berman. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >>> it's good to be mitt right now. romney is hitting the battlegrounds and hammering away at the president. >> here's the kicker. remember that hidden camera video of romney's controversial 47% remark? >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. 47% are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to provide for them, belief they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. they will vote for this president no matter what. >> remember that. and remember romney's explanation after the video was released. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question. it's a message i'll carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is tractive to people who are not paying taxes. because frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to the
. this is a widely debated thing in 1980 with john anderson, gary johnson. >> sure, but ross perot made a difference. >> sure. >> they think that perot widely lost. >> we don't have a third party candidate anywhere near the name recognition or the popularity of ross perot or john anderson. i just don't see that happening. in fact, i see that it's almost a nonfactor, so i'm not worried about it. >> let me ask you about the new economic figures that came out. unemployment dipped below 8%. something i'm sure republicans celebrate as well. does it not undercut what has been the central theme of the republican campaign which was that he has made the economy worse because we are right down looking at an unemployment rate after a really horrible year which you can't mram president obama for in totality his first year that he inherited this big mess. now it's down to 7.8%. doesn't that show that he is on the right trajectory and kind of undermining the central argument for you? >> oh, i don't think so. you know, it's like this, candy. if you are getting blown out in a football game but you are scoring field
well in the first debate. remember how badly george bush came off in the first debate with john kerry in '04? all of the debates were in john kerry's favor in '04. was it perhaps that president obama wasn't prepared? busy campaigning and did he perhaps let the prep slide? did he go into the debate with a game plan that the best offense is a good defense? finally, can barack obama get back into a winning mode? the polls were looking good going into this, right? you got two remaining debates with romney. we are going to get some answers and smeperspective from charles blow. i read your column and i know how you feel about this. give me the quick one-liner how you thought last night went? >> obama lost. i play basketball in high school and you're not in your best form and you lose it. doesn't mean you lose the election and the other guy is better. just means you danny show up that night and didn't do a good job. go back, look at the tape and practice hard and come back the next time and do a better job the next time. >> he let himself be interrupted. he didn't call out certain kinds of i
